What many people today consider "Buddhism" —a rational, philosophical way of life with little ritual or belief in the supernatural—is actually a distinctively modern reformulation of the ancient religious tradition. The development of what some scholars call Buddhist Modernism has a fascinating history going back to the nineteenth century. Colonialism in Sri Lanka, Transcendentalism in America, Protestantism in Europe, and modern psychology all contributed to its most recent manifestation, the scientific study of meditation and interpretation of Buddhism as a "science of mind." Find out how this dialogue between science and Buddhism has been shaped by the remaking of Buddhism in the context of modernity.
